    If I suck down around 91-92, and shooting 100 is not sucking, where is the suck/not-suck line?

    I need to know if this is attainable.

    It's up to you. The line is drawn in your mind and your mind only. Some people will think you suck even at 100, but do you really value their opinion?

    Wouldn't someone of your intelligence already have all these answers? I mean you said yourself that we should sit back and be good students. What a joke you are.

    I think the line is drawn by what you can acheive with how little practice to acheive it,so if you can shoot 92% and you only shoot 4 practice rounds a month thats good shooting.

    I have to agree with billyboy. It depends on your own level at which you want to perform at. I don't break scores like I use to, but I'm raising three kids and don't have the time or money to shoot like I did before kids.I have had to lowered my standards a bit in the mean while.

    I don't know where the line is. However, and this is just my personal opinion, I think the term "sucks" is a vile one for everyday conversation. I remember the context in which it was used when it first came into use.

    I know times change. Still, "Class is Class" and it always will be. And I hate seeing nice people lowering their standards. Seems it's sort of what the whole country is doing, in one way or another.....

    I agree with you Mike. Function of my advanced age I guess. Folks like Indy grow like a cancer among us. No respect for you, me, themselves, or others.

    Trash comment, Price. Cheap shot for hitting me over your buddy's comment.

    Setter launched this at me after learning that I shot in the low 90's.

    Oh well...of course, that changes everything! Someone else is doing it so it must be good form. This current crop of shallow thinkers have brains a mile wide and a millimeter deep.

    Wouldn't that still yield the exact volume as the other way 'round?

    100% is not the maximum. Just ask any pencil pushing employer.

    In my mind, I'm never satisfied.

    If I broke 100 straight, I'd say that was nice, but..........I should have broke them harder. lol

    Tis a fact...........
